Despite the challenges of the recent Movement Control Order, Perodua’s vehicles seemed to have no problems finding their way out of showrooms.
The company posted a total of 7,886 units cars sold in the month of May, bringing its year-to-date sales figure to 52,920 units. That’s rather impressive when you consider that Perodua sold 8,601 cars in March before the MCO came into effect on the 18th. With an estimated year-to-date total industry volume of 129,401 units, that translates to a 41% year-to-date market share for Perodua.
“The ongoing COVID-19 situation has had a significant impact on car sales in Malaysia over the past two months but we are thankful that in just three weeks since we restarted operations nationwide, we have managed to come close to the level of our March figures pre-Movement Control Order (MCO),” said Perodua President and CEO, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
Of the 7,886 units that Perodua sold, 2,612 were Myvis, 2,028 were Axias, 1,820 were the Bezza which we raced against the Saga, 950 were the Aruz and the Alza continues to draw decent numbers with 476 units sold.
As for the month of June, Perodua’s “Meaningful Raya” campaign is offering special cash redemptions of up to RM1,300 for the Aruz and selected Myvi variants, while buyers of other models will get a RM300 e-voucher that is redeemable for the purchase of selected parts and accessories at any authorised Perodua service centre.
